Studies Suggest that Colloidal Silver is Effective Against Pathogens. Here’s What We Love About It:

  • Kills and prevents bacterial growth, including bacteria that are antibiotic-resistant
  • Treats and prevents sinus infections when used as an additive to a sinus rinse
  • Kills some strains of pathogenic yeasts, including Candida
  • Prevents viruses from entering human cells
  • Reduces inflammation in contact dermatitis
  • Disrupts bacterial biofilm (a slimy shield that allows bacteria to hide from antibiotics)
  • Fights against Vibrio cholera and a dangerous strain of E. coli, both of which could cause serious cases of diarrhea.

What exactly is Colloidal Silver?

Glad you asked, it’s actually silver put through a process in which a colloid of micro-fine silver particles is dispersed in ultra-pure water, free of any other ingredient or contaminant. The silver ions attach to bacteria cell membranes and suppress oxygen which does not allow them to replicate. This causes die off of pathogenic bacteria and helps your body flush it out.

10 Ways to Boost your Immune System

Here are 10 easy ways to Boost Your Immune System

Create a Strong Immune System-Here's How

Create a Strong Immune System-Here’s How

 

 

 

 

 

 

A well-functioning immune system is the basic foundation for your good health. It’s your body’s natural defense system. It is made up of an intricate network of cells, tissues, and organs that all band together to defend your body against invaders.

The invaders are many. They can be bacteria, viruses, parasites, even a fungus. They all have to possiblity of making you sick. A healthy immune system protects you by first creating a barrier that stops those invaders, also called antigens, from entering the body.

If one happens to slip by the barrier, it’s the immune system that produces white blood cells, and other chemicals and proteins that attack and destroy these foreign substances.

Your immune system does an amazing job of constantly defending you against disease-causing microorganisms. It is able to recognize millions of different antigens. When it’s working properly, it can produce what it needs to get rid of nearly all of them.

Here are 10 simple ways to help boost your immune system so that you keep it in optimal condition.

1 Diet

Eat a diet that fits your needs. Be sure to include lots of fruits, vegetables, and protein that is low in saturated fat. There is also some evidence that various micro-nutrient deficiencies, like deficiencies of zinc, selenium, iron, copper, folic acid, and vitamins A, B6, C, and E — alter immune responses in animals, as measured in a test tube.

2 Get adequate sleep.

Our body heals and regenerates when we sleep. Take advantage of the benefits. The UCLA Cousins Center Research team  found that even a small amount of sleep loss can trigger an immune system response in the body that increases inflammation that can cause tissue damage.

3 Exercise regularly.

There are lots of options… from walking, yoga, stretching, working out at the gym. The main idea is to ‘keep moving’. Hundreds of studies demonstrate that exercise helps you feel better and live longer. Think about starting and maintaining an exercise program that suits your abilities and lifestyle.

4 Don’t smoke.

Smoking weakens the immune system by depressing antibodies and cells that are in the body to protect against foreign invaders. There is an association between smoking and the increased incidence of certain malignant diseases and respiratory infections, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).

5 Watch your weight.

Maintaining a healthy weight definitely assists in keeping the immune system less stressed. Carrying extra pounds in a burden to your body an your immune system.
Certain immune system cells may play an important role in weight control. Scientists know that the immune cells may help ward off obesity in mice. New findings suggest the same is true in humans.

6 Control your stress levels.

During periods of increased stress, “the immune cells are being bathed in molecules which are essentially telling them to stop fighting,” according to Dr. Esther Sternberg. These molecules, namely cortisol, suppress the immune system and inflammatory pathways, rendering the body more susceptible to disease.

7 Drink moderate amounts of alcohol, if you drink at all.

Alcohol suppresses both the innate and the adaptive immune systems. Chronic alcohol use reduces the ability of white blood cells to effectively surround and swallow up harmful bacteria

8 Take vitamins and supplements

BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

PERFECT PASS IMMUNE FORMULA

They will enhance your sense of well-being. They can help fill in the gaps in your diet. Certain vitamins, herbs and supplements are known to help boost how the immune system functions. If you suspect your diet is not providing you with all your micro-nutrient needs, taking a daily immune support multi vitamin/mineral/herb supplement brings health benefits of many types including beneficial effects on the immune system.

9 Drink lots of water daily.

Staying hydrated can boost your immune health as well. Water helps your body produce lymph, which carries white blood cells and other immune system cells. Try not to overdo beverages that may make you dehydrated, like coffee.

10 Get regular medical screening tests for people in your age group and risk category.

The aging process somehow leads to a reduction of immune response capability, which in turn contributes to more infections, more inflammatory diseases, and more cancer. A reduction in immune response to infections has even been demonstrated by older people’s response to vaccines. Be sure to check in and find out how you’re doing.

Do You Know What Dysbiosis is?

You may have heard this term in relation to gut health and wondered what it exactly does it mean.

It means “microbial imbalance on or inside the body”.  This can be the root cause of many health problems, particularly when there is dysbiosis in the gut. Since the gut controls the brain and the immune system, one can only imagine what havoc it brings upon us when it’s out of balance.

Our gut contains millions of bacteria. Some good and some bad. It is important to have the right balance of bacteria so our bodies can function well. If the bacteria is out of wack, we can experience a wide array of very unpleasant symptoms.

What are the Symptoms of Dysbiosis?

    • Gastrointestinal problems such as yeast overgrowth (candida), IBS, food allergies, gas and bloating
    • Urinary problems such as chronic urinary tract infections
    • Chronic colds/coughs, and ear infections
    • Lack of energy
    • Rashes, including eczema, hives, rosacea, and acne.
    • Respiratory problems such as asthma, sinusitis, allergies.

What Causes Dysbiosis:

  • Poor Diet
  • Exposure to toxins
  • Too many antibiotics
  • Stress

Too often people just address one or two of these causes. In order for your symptoms to go away permanently it’s crucial to pay attention to all issues which cause imbalance.

First and foremost, uncover what the root cause of your symptoms are by taking a simple at home gut test. We like the tests offered by Genova and Doctors Data. These kits can be ordered based on what symptoms you are experiencing. If you need help determining what test is right for you just give us a call and we are happy to help.

How Can I Get My Gut Bacteria Back in balance?

Diet can be the most important factor in relieving dysbiosis. Eat whole foods that come from the ground and eliminate processed foods and sugar. We recommend the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. This Diet works by addressing the root cause of digestive disease. It heals the gut by calming down the  inflammation and re-balancing the gut bacteria.

Read more about the Specific Carbohydrate Diet by clicking here. Choose the version of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet that’s custom fit for your needs. Once you start the SCD it will become second nature. For ideas on what to make for meals give the Specific Carbohydrate Diet Recipe Book a try.

Alleviate stress by incorporating breathing techniques, meditation or yoga into your daily routine. There are many ways to incorporate stress reduction techniques in as little as five minutes a day. Check out some of the apps which can be downloaded on your phone for easy to use guided mediations and breathing exercises while you’re on the go.  Visit the Stress Help Center web site. There is a very cost effective special offer on the 8 Week Module. This simple to use program provides instruction which can done at your desk or your most comfortable living room chair.

Have you taken antibiotics in the last year?

Always supplement with probiotics during and after a course of antibiotics. The antibiotics clear out all your good gut bacteria. Microbiologist Kiran Krishnan has been researching gut health for over 10 years. His clinical trials show that just one course of antibiotics will eliminate all your good gut bacteria. If you do nothing to build up the good bacteria it can take over a year for your gut to return to normal.

During the cold and flu season you want your immune system functioning at optimal levels. Don’t waste any time in replenishing your good bacteria and building up your immune system. We advise our clients to take the Perfect Pass Probiotic before and during antibiotic use. For best results to rebuilding your immunity add Perfect Pass Immune Support after a course of antibiotics.

Can You Detox Naturally?

If you have a build up of toxins that is causing your symptoms consider detoxing with natural agents. Good Gut Solution recommends HVS Detoxosodes for removing specific toxins such as heavy metals, chemicals, parasites, molds and tobacco. Customize your detoxification program once you have your test results. Call us if you have any questions.

Lower your Exposure to Toxic Chemicals in Your Home

Last month President Obama signed  legislation which will overhaul the nation’s archaic, 40-year-old toxic chemical rules.  Due to loop holes in the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act, there’s at least 64,000 chemicals used today, which have not been tested for safety.

How Soon Will Testing of Toxic Substances Go Into Effect?

In a nutshell, these 64,000 existing chemicals will be subject to safety testing for the first time. Sound like a step forward? Critics say the changes will not happen fast enough. The testing will include 20 chemicals at a time with a deadline of seven years per chemical.

This is far too slow to limit our exposure to toxins found in everything from children’s toys to household cleaners. Even more surprising is that the new legislation doesn’t cover pesticides used in food production. 

A coalition of doctors, scientists and health advocates have joined together to launch Project TENDR; Targeting Environmental Neuro-Developmental Risks. They released a statement today in Environmental Health Perspectives calling for aggressive regulation. Their goal is to protect citizens from neurotoxic chemicals by increasing regulation and testing of toxic chemicals before they are approved for use. BrainThey argue “why should we wait until chemicals are deemed unsafe before they are banned.” “Most chemicals in use today were not adequately tested for safety before being allowed on the market,” states  Dr. Jeanne Conry, an obstetrician-gynecologist and member of the TENDR coalition. 

Their combined research has shown that exposure to toxic chemicals may cause long term damage to the brain, especially during children’s critical development periods and during fetal development. 

What Can you Do to Reduce Toxic Chemical Exposure?

  • Minimize your pesticide exposure by choosing organic produce when possible. Refer to the 2016 Dirty Dozen List.
  • Drink plenty of fresh, clean water to flush your system. If you don’t know what’s in your drinking water check out the EWG Guide to water testing companies in your area. Consider adding a countertop water purifier to ensure fluoride, lead and other contaminants aren’t in your water. These toxic chemicals have been shown to have endocrine disrupting effects in children and elderly. 
  • Buy furniture without flame retardant chemicals
  • When choosing flooring check to make sure it’s phthalate-free vinyl flooring. Choose wood, bamboo or cork as alternatives.
  • Avoid any plastics that contain polyvinyl chloride (PVC) which can be a source of phthalates. These include toys, backpacks, lunch boxes, food containers and school supplies. Avoid plastic for storing food and invest in glass containers. 
  • Choose fragrance-free personal care products to avoid phthalates in fragrances.
  • Avoid toxic cleaning products; everything from toilet bowl cleaners to laundry detergent can be loaded with toxic chemicals. Many cleaning products are available without toxins. Consider making your own with vinegar, lemon and baking soda.
  • Use nontoxic pesticides in your yard and on pets.
  • Screen your house for lead. If your house was built prior to 1978 chances are high that there is lead paint on the walls. If you think you may have had exposure consider taking the Genova Lab Toxic Element Profile test. 

    You can detoxify on a daily basis by adding PerfectPass Immune Support to your diet. The green component of our formula consists of barley grass, alfalfa leaf, spirulina, wheat grass and oatgrass. These greens are considered powerhouse grasses that clean up our toxins and repair damage. They are most effective for detoxification and aid in removing heavy metals from  the body.
